Mid-Campaign Content Boost and Add-Ons Release
Dear mutant wonders, as you might have noticed, we’re currently plodding through the dreaded mid-campaign slog. It happens to every campaign and it slows things down, sometimes to a halt. But this is not any other campaign. These are not plodding humans you’re dealing with!
Part 1: Mid-Campaign Boost Time
So the Council of Mutant Elders has decreed that we shall mutate the pattern and give you guys MORE stuff rather than less! It’s Mid-Campaign Boost time! We are thus releasing a juicy set of goodies that will boost the base game entirely FREE.
Team Versus Mode – Standard Base Game and Deluxe Base Game
Gordon has been hard at work developing and testing a new game mode that adds a whole different dimension to a game of Posthuman Saga: the Team Versus. Here 2 teams of 2 players compete for the favour of the Fortress. Each team will play on the same map, working together to fight enemies, face story encounters together, trade and perform joint or complementary actions to reach their shared Mission Objective together and score as many of the Recon Objectives as they can manage together, and go Mutant Boss hunting together if they so wish to!
The game will take 12 turns and have fewer Broadcast auctions. These will work slightly differently to the normal auction, needing more collaboration from the team-mates to get the tiles and Scavenge sites they want.
Most actions work similarly to the way they do in the standard game aside from the Explore Action which is most often resolved by both players simultaneously. For a team to place a Mission Objective token on the board both players must play an Explore Action in the same turn while ending their move on the same tile. They then face the story or combat encounter together. In the case of a combat encounter they will draw one enemy each and then discuss which weapons cards and abilities to use against them pooling their combined results together.
Players on the same team will also be able to trade together when they are on the same tile.
This mode plays very differently from the competitive game and adds a ton of replayability and fun to the game! Along with the rules for the game we are giving away the necessary components to play it including:
Upgraded Challenge Tokens and 'Maryjane' Turn Counter
Several of you have asked for the Challenge tokens in the Deluxe version of the game to be upgraded. We have decided to unlock this now and put a smile on your mutant faces!
And that's not all… we present to you Maryjane, the Mutant Doll Turn Counter. This was a little thank you we came up with at the start of the campaign for the rocketing start to this Posthuman adventure that we were going to give you guys at the end of the campaign. But we figured, what the hell, let’s just announce it now! Maryjane was found by the Scavenger on a trash heap. She had an arm missing when he found her so he stitched on a makeshift arm from a toy octopus.
We figured a cool looking game like this should have an equally cool looking turn counter. So here it is!
Part 2: Release the Add-Ons!
We have a little squad of Add-Ons for you to slide your tentacles over. To add any of these KS Exclusive Limited add-ons just add the amount to your pledge. You will be asked to specify the item in the pledge manager.
We're not saving the best one for last…
The Wanderer Hero Add-On
As you might have noticed from browsing the campaign page, Heroes in Posthuman Saga come with a fair bit of content and create a different way of playing and at times winning the game. The Wanderer has a slightly stronger stat line but comes with a mutation. Having said that, his travels deep into the Mutant Lands have made him adapt to mutations more than other characters, and he can use them more to his advantage than most. This new Hero comes with his deck of unique development cards, deck of combat cards, unique items, tokens, miniature and character card.
Then, by popular demand, we have a Posthuman Saga printed dice bag holding all the dice that come with the Base game and Resistance Expansion.
Finally, we’ve been getting a ton of requests for the original Posthuman. As we mention in the main campaign page we have 300 remaining copies of the game. We’re giving away the Wilds Mini-Expansion with the base game during this campaign. Since a fair few of you have asked for it we suggest you add the $39 to your pledge here. We will give priority to backers who add the amount during the campaign if we go over the 300 copies. This will ship out of Europe and thus any region outside of Europe will incur rest of the world prices.
That’s all for now!!! It’s been quite the mutant bonanza and hope you guys enjoy our little parade of mutant pretties. It would be a great help to us and the campaign if you guys could share this campaign with friends, on social media and any other venue you think can spread the tentacles of mutations to new recruits.
Thanks again for your support!
